You need to walk though town to reach the start of the trail to Tortuga Bay which is a lovely paved path through nature to reach the fine white sands and turquoise waters of Tortuga Bay.

The Galapagos National Park is one of the biggest attractions that the island has because they are endangered species such as the famous giant tortoises or Galapagos, which give name to the islands.
We were taken to Santa Cruz Island by the nature guides from "the Letty" a yacht operated by Ecoventura.
